News.com.au reveals the brave actress is fighting on more than a day later.

Yesterday the local media revealed the driver of the other car involved who also died in the crash, had previously had a nine-year driving ban and at least 10 convictions for driving while disqualified.

Jessica’s parents Lars, 69 and Vivian, 60 died instantly at the scene.

Her younger sister Annabelle, 21, died three days later.

Officers could not confirm if Whitall, who also died at the scene, had been using his mobile phone at the time of the crash.

The remains of those killed in the crash were so badly burned, they had to be identified by their dental records, SBS reported.

Witnesses said they saw Whitall’s white Toyota Prado cross the central line of the road twice before it smashed into the car carrying the family.
